Opinion & Essays - Oct, 1996 Issue 


From: Joe Akins <teen_ch@prysm.net> 
To: Lon Woodbury <lon@woodbury.com

Thanks for the Humpty Dumpty article. Iíve long identified family involvement and reunion as being essential to our girlsí overall and long term success. Its obvious that we just start a process. 

However, practical implementation is something that frankly we are not as successful at as I think we should be. Because we work with the girl day in and day, that should be the object. The article addressing this issue is good. 

Another major problem we experience in this area is with parents who just simply donít care, or worse. Iíd like some feed back as to how other facilities pre-program; and, how they deal with the practical problems of distance, cost, time etc for families who are willing to be involved with their child while she is in the program.
